Sue Walton at the Knitting and Stitching Show

A little distracted by a grouchy baby, for once I didn't leave the Knitting and Stitching Show with an exploding imagination.  But one artist I did come across, who had me utterly mesmerised, was Sue Walton.
The majority of her display was based around felted textiles, and I was bewitched by the fanciful, fairytale lightness of it all.  And by her use of spoons.  Teaspoons dressed up as fairies, little theatre sets featuring teaspoons ... her work brought together my love of beauty and imagination in total harmony.

Unfortunately I can't find images of the exact display, but these 'Fork Fairies' from her collection, 'Jabberwocky' give a pretty good flavour.
